Sustainability – History of Concepts and Practices
This highly interactive summer school offers students interested in sustainability from all disciplines the opportunity to gain skills in analyzing historical literature and data, and applying that information to on-going and emerging complex socio-environmental problems for which there are no easy answers, i.e., so-called ‘wicked problems’. While ‘sustainability’ is relatively recent terminology, the concept has been developing over several centuries in response to changes in culture, society and scientific knowledge.
